That means a NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M graphics card

I also suspect that there might be problems replicating this bug, so I will try to do some digging of my own. Since I have built the FLTK library on my own, I might tinker a bit with the source and might run a strace (or windows equiv.) on the glut demos and the fltk demos to see if there might be a difference.

This will be the first Ill be checking. I'll get back when I have some results.
